    Kiwis are one step closer to a Covid-19 vaccine after nine large freezers capable of storing 1.5 million vaccine doses were unloaded at the Ports of Auckland today

    Kiwis are one step closer to a Covid-19 vaccine after nine large freezers capable of storing 1.5 million vaccine doses were unloaded at the Ports of Auckland today


    The nine freezers will become New Zealand's central storage facility for Covid-19 vaccines and can reach the ultra-low temperature of -80°C degrees necessary to safely store the inoculations.

    A Ministry of Health spokesperson says they were also progressing the purchase of additional freezer capacity.

    They say most of the freezers are likely to get installed in Auckland as our main storage area - and some in the South Island, but final details are yet to be confirmed.
